My son, asked me about electric fences, and it brought back a time when I was around his age. I thought some of the Sadists here might find it funny.
 
I was with some friends, and we all know how that is, we love them, but they do tend to cause a lack in judgement. We decided that we'd go fishing down at the tidal creek, on the other side of old man Freemans farm. The only problem here is do you walk around, which is a very long walk or do you cut through his farm and cut your journey extensively. You know what we decided, you were young once too.
Well the old man had a hog pen, that we had to cut through, and it had an electric fence, the fact that even the really big hogs stayed clear of this, should have been a clue.
Richard who was yhe oldest of us went first, and stepped on the wire and proceeded about his business, I figure rubber soles were insulating from the shock. James went next, and held the fence down with his feet as well, so far so good. I'm the last one to go across, and everyone had left their gear on my side of the fence. I was handing the gear over to the fellas, then it was my turn to cross.
I placed my foot on the fence and began to place my weight, when the wire was on the ground, I began to cross. Now you have to envision the fact that this wire was just about slim and the twins level, and there was dew on the grass pasture that we had just crossed. I'm sure that you can figure out what happened next, just in case you can't, I'll tell ya, as the memory is electronically engraved in my brain. Wet shoes, crotch high electric wire, wet shorts ( the grass was rather high) a boy standing on that wire wearing said wet, and slippery soled shoes, and wet swim shorts = Bad JUJU.
Just about the time I was bringing my other leg across the wire the wire came out from under the foot that had been holding it down. Did I mention the fact the fence was at the same level as slim and the twins? Yeah I guess I did.
You know how when you pull the string on a light fixture and the bulb lights up? I learned first hand that simply putting an electrical charge to that same pull string will cause the bulbs to light up as well. Yeah that's right, Two 120 watt SOFT WHITES, and ONE FLOURESCENT TUBE. I bit my tongue, and my lower lip.
I also noticed that slim and the twins have been getting even all these years since, as they continually are getting me in trouble.

some people got a thing for electricity--- I've heard sponging the contact area before hand with salty water takes the sting out of it.
